  • “There is a strong international emphasis to the practice and it is frequently appointed as an independent administrator and litigation friend in long-running disputes.”

Osbornes Law is based in London; however, the firm has a truly international reach.

Many clients whom we represent have international estates and assets. For example, we write wills for clients who have property in other jurisdictions, and we advise dealing with an international estate’s probate. Our divorce lawyers act for wealthy, high-profile individuals and families who have assets in other countries, have lived in a different country or perhaps now send their children to an international school abroad.

Our alternative parenting team specialise in intercountry adoption and surrogacy and come to Osbornes Law because we are international law specialists in this area. Other experts in our child law team also deal with the international relocation and abduction of children to other countries or from abroad to the UK.

We have recently acted in cases that span the following jurisdictions: Europe, UAE, Russia, Singapore, USA, Israel and Australia.

Because of our international services, we have built up a network of trusted professional advisors who practice in their respective jurisdictions. This includes other lawyers, accountants (financial and forensic) and wealth planners. We only work with other firms that offer their clients the same level of client care and expertise as ours.

To speak with us about your international matter, contact us by phone or fill in an online enquiry, and we will call you back. We have the latest high-speed video conferencing and can set up an initial meeting to discuss your case with one of our lawyers.

    • I received an outstanding service from Osbornes Law in relation to the processing of a complicated overseas Will. The service provided by Suzanna Baker and Jan Atkinson was very professional, their communication was clear and concise, and I felt that they did all they could to ensure as smooth a progression through probate as could be expected. I would 100% recommend this law firm.
